Started out with a breakfast at the local Cracker Barrel restaurant, before heading toward New Orleans, LA.
Stopped at a few places, among them the Louisiana Visitor Center, where we got some advice for where to stay and eat.
Not so much driving today. It was nice to have a quiet afternoon for once. Checked in at the hotel at 3pm.
New Orleans is a consolidated city-parish located along the Mississippi River in the southeastern region of the U.S. state of Louisiana. With an estimated population of 393,292 in 2017, it is the most populous city in Louisiana. A major port, New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub for the broader Gulf Coast region of the United States.
New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. The city has been described as the “most unique” in the United States, owing in large part to its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage.
It’s gonna be hot.
Walked over to the French quarter and had dinner. New Orleans Medley at Acme Oyster House. Good food, but expected it to be hotter.
Walked a bit in Bourbon street, which was a strange place. Probably weirder at night. Hot day, so we didn’t walk very far, before taking Uber back to the hotel.
Relaxing in the bar, before heading up to the room to blog and check social media.
